With Art -In-The-Park and the House Tour behind us, I would like to extend a special thank you to all the homeowners and volunteers whose countless hours of preparation made for one of our most successful house tours. I also want to recognize the advertisers and patrons for their financial support. Thanks to Merrily Starkey for hosting a wonderful pre House Tour party. Thanks to Bob Berner for his House Tour Book design expertise and to Ron DeLong for his beautiful artwork. Through the generous sponsorship of City Center Lehigh Valley, Jaindl Properties, and Saleem Saab, tour goers got to experience West Park history and downtown’s renaissance. This year Art –In-The-Park had a record number of exhibitors due to the continued efforts of Peggy and Rob Egolf. West Park looked especially well groomed thanks to the efforts of the Allentown Parks Department. Special musical events were made possible through the contributions of Saleem Saab and Ryan Henriquez, The weekend culminated Sunday evening with 60 guests enjoying a wonderful lobster bake hosted by Bolete amid the beautiful setting of West Park.
Please mark your calendars for three upcoming events. The first of which is Dinner and a Movie on August 16th. If you would like to reserve a table for your picnic meal, contact Rob and Peggy Egolf. The movie is “Gravity”. Bolete is planning its second dinner event in West Park scheduled for September 28th. Details to follow. October 5th is the fall brunch, complete with live music. Please visit our website for more specific details on these events.
Thank you again for your continued support of the West Park Civic Association. Look forward to seeing all of you in the near future.
